Become a Project Hero!

The Project Management Professional (PMP®) is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. 

You can find PMPs leading projects in nearly every country and, unlike other certifications that focus on a particular geography or domain, the PMP® is truly global. As a PMP, you can work in virtually any industry, with any methodology and in any location.

The PMP® can also provide a significant advantage when it comes to salary and earning potential. Among survey respondents to Project Mangement Institute (PMI) Earning Power Salary Survey, those with a PMP certification garner a higher salary (20% higher on average) than those without a PMP certification.*

Employers benefit as well. When more than one-third of their project managers are PMP-certified, organizations complete more of their projects on time, on budget and meeting original goals. (Pulse of the Profession® study, PMI, 2015.)

The PMP signifies that you speak and understand the global language of project management and connects you to a community of professionals, organizations and experts worldwide. Become a PMP® and become a project hero.

  • Anyone seeking professional development, recognition, or promotion
  • Anyone with project management experience who wishes to stay up-to-date with industry best practices

Tips for Exam Success

This is an intensive exam preparation course, so students should not expect the class to end early. Classes are expected to start and end promptly and students who arrive late or leave early will miss important exam-related information.

In preparation for the best success in earning the PMP certifcation, take these steps before the course begins:

  • Create or update your TheProfessional.me profile for access to all class information details, exam preparation learning aids and class notifications
  • Complete or mostly complete your PMP exam application. The best way to prepare and submit your application is to do so online at PMI's website
  • Members of PMI have access to a free copy of the PMBOK Guide online that may be printed. Students are advised to read the PMBOK Guide prior to class
